New on the ASW store this week are three new Albert Thurston barathea brace designs for warmer weather, including two colorful stripes that will brighten your entire day. And then there is a made in the U.S.A. hand-thrown stoneware shaving scuttle which, for those who are unfamilar, helps the luxury shave experience feel even more luxurious.
With a large handle for a brush rest as well as a secure grip, and a large spout for easy filling of the 16 oz. reservoir, my Best Shaving Scuttle helps you turn shaving cream into thick, warm lather. Fill the inner and outer bowls with hot tap water, then let your shaving brush stand in it for a couple of minutes (while you shower works well). Empty both bowls and refill the outer reservoir with more hot water. Build your lather in the inner bowl and it will remain warm for at least the time necessary to make three razor passes over your face.
And that is all there is to it.
